Every year, we strive to grow our programs to save more lives.
But with everything we do, we make sure to view it through a lens that is focused on making long-term, sustainable change.
We believe strong fiscal management is key to optimizing and leveraging resources. We do this by:
- Recognizing the value of every dollar
- Incorporating trained volunteers in everything we do
- Recruiting talented professionals from a wide range of backgrounds, emphasizing private sector experience in our executive management
- Supporting a culture of continuous improvement, always considering how we can do more with less
